Poetry. CORONOLOGY explores the odd too-muchness/not-enoughness of imaginative experience—is this the neighborhood we signed up for? What was The Book That Consumed Everything seeking as it gobbled up all the other books? If the sky were to fall to earth, what would the recovery process involve? "Nakedly beautiful, the book shimmers with insight, even as it creates an entirely other world, one I wish I could stay in for days, weeks, years. A one of a kind book—wistfully sweet and delicately wrought, brilliant and irresistible"—Nin Andrews.
